Birth announcement etiquette
What basic information should you include?
What would be the first thing you normally ask new parents about their baby? Is it a boy or a girl? What did the baby weigh? What’s the name? The answers to these questions would be the most important information to put on your birth announcement. And make sure to include the baby’s gender as most newborns look the same and names can be ambiguous. Some other details you can include, can be:
Names of the parents and siblings
A baby website
A sentence about ‘visiting hours’ of the newborn
What about announcements for multiples?
You can include the same kind of information, but maybe you have to modify it for the length (so you can include all the names of the babies). If you are feeling stuck on what to include, just remember: less is more! You should feel comfortable with the information mentioned on the announcement.
